We’re Here to Help You Find Financial Aid

NYS Excelsior Scholarship Info
The Herkimer College financial aid team works hard to make applying for aid an easy, painless process. In fact, about 75% of our students receive some form of financial aid.

We’re dedicated to helping students find and secure funding for their education. From grants to loans to campus employment to scholarships to alternative financing options, we will help guide and connect you with a wide array of solutions to ease the cost of attendance and residence life and housing.

Once we determine financial need and that you meet eligibility requirements and admissions criteria, we’ll explain everything you need to know about how to apply and provide you with the correct forms and instructions. 

Financial aid is any grant, scholarship, loan, or employment opportunity with the express purpose of assisting students with educational related expenses. Although the primary obligation for college expenses rests with the student and the student's parents, the College, the community and the State and Federal governments have programs of financial assistance that can be employed separately or in combination to meet individual needs.
